This bright, jammy Cabernet is both powerful and perfectly approachable. Cassis, dark chocolate, and blackberry aromas are softened by a hint of vanilla/oak for richness and complexity. In the mouth, flavors of fresh berries, currants, cloves, and a lingering note of cocoa are evident. The wine is full-bodied with nicely balanced tannins and a medium long finish that allows you to keep enjoying this wine long after it has left the glass. Our Monterey Cabernet Sauvignon matches up well with a wide range of foods from roasted red meats and rich pasta dishes to dark chocolate brownies.
Producer
Perched high on the western slopes of the remote Gavilan Mountain Range, 1,800 feet above California’s Salinas Valley, Chalone Vineyard represents a singular convergence of terroir and winemaking. Here thin, well-drained limestone-based soils combine with a sunny, wind-cooled microclimate and limited rainfall to produce fruit of unique richness and character that demonstrate this vineyard’s typicity. Originally planted in 1919, the vineyard’s ability to yield benchmark Chardonnay was discovered when Chalone Wine Group cofounder Dick Graff made his first vintage here in 1966. The time-honored Burgundian techniques he introduced complement the fruit’s inimitable character to create the full bouquet and hedonistic flavors that are Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay’s hallmarks.
